Zhilei Zhang Declares His Fight the True Main Event in Saudi Rumble on March 8

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia: Zhilei “Big Bang” Zhang is throwing a bomb before his heavyweight clash with Joseph Parker, claiming that their co-main event will be the real spectacle on March 8th, not the much-anticipated Anthony Joshua vs. Francis Ngannou showdown.

While Joshua and Ngannou’s cross-sport clash grabs the headlines, Zhang believes his twelve-round war with Parker will steal the show at the Kingdom Arena. “Parker isn’t someone you can sleep on,” Zhang declared to FightHype. “I’m very happy to showcase my skills in Saudi Arabia. In my point of view, that’s the true main event.”

Zhang’s bold statement stems from his skepticism about the Joshua-Ngannou fight. He views it as a mere “ten-round exhibition” due to Ngannou’s limited boxing experience. “People are tuning in for the boxing vs. MMA clash,” Zhang admits, “but to me, there’s no question that Joshua will win. It’s an exhibition, and from a boxing perspective, you know who the real main event will be.”

Adding fuel to the fire, Zhang throws shade at the Joshua-Ngannou fight’s legitimacy. “You wouldn’t see this in other sports,” he argues. “You can’t just walk in from another sport and play at the highest level.” This raises questions about the fight’s official status and potential impact on rankings.

Meanwhile, Parker isn’t napping on the hype. “No sleeping allowed,” he warns. He’s hungry for redemption after his recent loss to Joe Joyce and sees the Saudi clash as a chance to prove himself on the world stage.

With Zhang’s fiery pronouncements and Parker’s steely focus, the co-main event promises to be a captivating battleground. Will Zhang’s “Big Bang” explode and eclipse the main event, or will Parker silence the doubters and claim his victory? One thing’s for sure: March 8th in Riyadh is shaping up to be a night of explosive boxing action, with both the ring and the words outside it promising fireworks.
